Be sure to check with your program administrator to learn how your group will be coordinating the entry of FY13 metrics data into the latest greatest version of the Metrics Database at https://www.ncar.ucar.edu/internal/metrics/
The deadline for metrics to be entered in the database for the FY13 period (Oct. 1, 2012 to Sept. 30, 2013) is the close of business Wednesday, Dec. 4th.
David Vance has programmed a lot of terrific improvements into the latest version that will save you time, effort and data entry so if you weren’t able to make one of our roll out presentations this past week we created a link from the Metric Database Help Page to:
1. a link to the ReadyTalk recording of the Metrics Database and OpenSky for FY13 presentation by Helen Moshak and Jennifer Phillips (view of the screen and audio) at https://www.ncar.ucar.edu/internal/metrics/presentation2013/ . Using the scroll bar in the ReadyTalk window you can pick the slide or point in the presentation you want to learn more about and skip straight to that screen and audio!
and if you’d like a copy of the presentation ppt. document
2. a copy of the Metrics Database and OpenSky for FY13 PowerPoint document is available at https://ncar.ucar.edu/sites/default/files/Metrics%20Dbase%20and%20OpenSky%20Roll%20Meeting%2010-30-13.pptx
to give you a tour of the new features and explain the schedule and OpenSky process. More details on the FY13 OpenSky Refereed Publications process to follow in a separate communication. Please let us know if you have any questions.
